Grutter?

I'm not gratzing the ellipse; the grades were there then edited out.

It's a really dumb law school (more specifically, con law) joke, and since I'm a law student, I almost burst out laughing in the middle of the library.

If you spoke with the same lady I spoke with, she basically told me that for 1L summer, I should get a firm job or bust. She didn't even ask me what I wanted to do with my degree. But no research assistant, no judicial externship, just a firm. It was turrible, as Sir Charles would say.

Finally! Three grades today (no LRW or Crim yet):

Civ Pro: A
Torts: A
K's: A

99% sure LRW will be an A (we got all our memo grades back with grade ranges), and I felt good about Crim as well. Pardon me while I drink myself silly.

What no A+s? How will you get into Wachtell with grades like those?

An LSAT 10 points over median will do that. Splitting the other way is probably a bad sign.

Yeah, I was disappointed at first but I can still get where I want to be after second semester. I was one grade increment off in all of my predictions, fucking pain in my ass (got an A- instead of a A, etc.).

I only have 1/4 of my grades! It's total BS too. Why would profs not want to get their grading done before the next semester starts? I just don't get it.

Not that I've been an avid participator on this thread, but I needed somewhere to share my grades, and I was happy to see how well everyone else has been doing (and to those who didn't do as well as they wanted, you'll kick butt next semester).

LRW: A
Crim: A
Ks: A
Torts: A (somehow...)

Huh. Contracts grade got raised due to a clerical error. If WUSTL didn't use a total numerical average-of-finals GPA system, this actually would have extremely effected my GPA since I was on a grade cutoff. But eh, I'll take what I can get.

Thinking about it, but I am really happy. I'm at a school in the 50's, but it's the best school in the city. It's a hard call for me.

Meh. I'm not going to post my grades, but could be better, could be worse.

Mathematically, making it much better is certainly possible for the next semester.

Go out and eat some Grade A beef, buy an Oakland A's jersey, and watch the movie Easy A while you are at it, since the title makes it sound like it is based on you anyway.

Hey, you had GDG right? Was that clerical error specific to you or did it apply to the whole section? I made an appt to talk to him about mine.

The rumor has percolated through the class that grades will be coming out Thursday. The waiting is starting to make me a little sick. What does a median student a middle of the pack T1 do?
...besides drop out...


...or killself...
